Unable to interact with management tools. Application is unresponsive or crashes.

Traced error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/Resources/libraries/workbench/notifications.py", line 34, in _the_observer
    obs(name, sender, args)
  File "/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/PlugIns/wb_admin_grt.py", line 379, in attachToSQLEditor
    context = AdministratorContext(sender)
  File "/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/PlugIns/wb_admin_grt.py", line 117, in __init__
  File "/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/PlugIns/wb_admin_grt.py", line 154, in _check_instance_profile
    if autoDetectLocalInstance(self.connection):
  File "/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/PlugIns/wb_admin_grt.py", line 455, in autoDetectLocalInstance
    profiles = get_profiles_for("MacOS X", version)
  File "/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/PlugIns/wb_admin_grt.py", line 433, in get_profiles_for
    if data.has_key("sys.system") and data["sys.system"] == system:
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'has_key'
/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/Resources/mysql.profiles/CMakeLists.txt:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found

How to repeat:
1. Launch App
2. Connect to localhost
3. Go to 'Server,' 'Management Access Settings' -- this consistently got the app to crash, though there were errors and unresponsiveness in other areas as well.

Suggested fix:
in Contents/PlugIns/wb_admin_gr.py, the autoDetectLocalInstance function is erroring out at line 433 because it's trying to parse a text file (Contents/Resources/mysql.profiles/CMakeList.txt) as XML. To address this, i added a regular expression match to the 'for f in files' loop to make sure it's an xml extension before trying to call the 'has_key' method on the object.

Thank you for the bug report. I couldn't repeat on the below environment, is there another condition besides the steps provided?:

MySQL Workbench Community (GPL) for Mac OS X version 6.1.7  revision 11891 build 1788
Configuration Directory: /Users/miguel/Library/Application Support/MySQL/Workbench
Data Directory: /Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/Resources
Cairo Version: 1.10.2
OS: OS X 10.9.x Mavericks
CPU: 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz - 16.00GiB RAM

I'm not sure there were any other preconditions...

I first installed the MySQL fresh from the DMG
then ran $./scripts/mysql_install_db

$ mysql --version
mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.6.19, for osx10.7 (x86_64) using  EditLine wrapper

And here is my python version. 
$ python --version
Python 2.7.5

Please let me know if there's any other information that might be useful.

Could you try version 6.2.1 beta whether you can still repeat this with it?

Resources/mysql.profiles/CMakeList.txt should just be deleted from distribution.

Also tested with 6.3.5.

Appears to have been resolved in 6.3.5, thanks!
